Join us in congratulating Miles Harvey and Kathleen Rooney, whose work has been honored by the Society of Midland Book Awards this year!
We would like to congratulate Marcy J. Dinius, Associate Professor in the department of English. Professor Dinius has been awarded her SECOND Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program award (in just as many years) to Japan for Spring 2022. Dinius will lecture at Ochanomizu University and Tsuda University in Tokyo.
Founded in 1980, the internationally acclaimed literary magazine Poetry East is celebrating National Poetry Month in April with two milestones—its 40th anniversary and its 100th issue. Poetry East has been edited from the start by the noted poet and DePaul professor Richard Jones, who reminds us that poetry should be accessible to anyone who reads it and is enthralled with language and ideas.
Coming up on April 21 at 6pm is a public celebration of the Poetry East double anniversary—40 years of operation and 100 issues—sponsored by the Chicago Public Library:
Jones will be in conversation with Miles Harvey, director of the DePaul Publishing Institute and author of The King of Confidence.
Newsline recently featured a piece on the fortieth anniversary of Poetry East, a wonderful tribute to Richard’s hard work in creating and maintaining this preeminent literary journal.
DePaul’s English Department extends a warm congratulations to our very own Megan Heffernan on the publication of her book Making the Miscellany: Poetry, Print, and the History of the Book in Early Modern England.
Today marks one month since the book was released! Check it out here.
Next month, Megan will be joining authors Laura Kolbys and Claire M. L. Bourne for a virtual celebration on May 14th at 10:00 a.m. Register here. This event is before the English Spring Conference, which will be recognizing student writing.
